WHY Tactic is imortant, Creation Museum Facebook attacked by "atheist".

http://www.onenewsnow.com/Culture/Default.aspx?id=1330078

Some asshole attacked the Facebook account of the Creationist Museum by posting graphic porn on the site.

PLEASE do not do this as a tactic.

WHY?

Unlike the FLA Pastor who was burning his own property, this Museum's site on Facebook was not the property of the attacker.

It is one thing to post dissenting views on apposing websites. It is another to do crap like this.

Brian Sapient for example, would have every right to ban someone for simply spamming, and no atheist or Christian would want their site to be attacked.

It is not a matter of political correctness. It is a matter of tit for tat. Words are one thing, blasphemy is one thing, but no matter what position one holds, people never like having their private property attacked.

If one wants to make fun of that bullshit Museum, do it in legal protest, or make fun of it here. This to me is no different than defacing houses or businesses or mosques or billboards with spray paint merely because you don't like the message.

GROW THE FUCK UP. If I found out, for example, that someone spray painted a local church, I wouldn't give a shit whom they are, I would report them to the police. Not because I find god belief credible, but because I don't want to live in a society where people act like gang members.

We don't like it when atheist sites get attacked. We don't like it when our atheist billboards get defaced. We do not need to lower ourselves to their standards.

I am all for blasting the absurdity of an invisible friend in the sky. I am not for high school pranks.

 OK, there is something

 

OK, there is something missing in that article. They claim to have found the guy. I suppose that I am happy. However, they then go on to say that his employer has a policy against that type of activity. Yah, so do most employers who don't want to get sued.

 

However, how are they making the connection? Did he do the job from work and how have they managed to prove that case (remember that FB is not likely to share that info)? Or did they just manage to make the connection that he might have done that and he works for a living?

 

Seriously, on the face of that article, it seems as if they are according the right to go after his job because they don't like him. They have no proof of anything that would make it legal for them to do so, they just reserve the right to destroy people on a whim.

 

Not that I approve of what the guy apparently did. But if Ken Hammfist and associates can make that much of a claim, then how do we know that the claim of posting porn was real either? Perhaps they just don't like the guy and they have decided that they are going to go after his job without any real cost.

The bottom line either way,

The bottom line either way, whether someone did it as a theist to get attention, or an actual atheist did it. Legality aside, that is not a tactic I want atheists resorting to.

We have plenty of legal means to say "you are full of shit", without resorting to high school tactics.

If there is any criminal actions going on FOR ANY situation, I would report it, even if it was an atheist.

You don't need to TP someone's house or spray paint on their property to get your message across.
